Question about Acer Computers & Internet
Hey. i have had my Microsoft wireless keyboard and mouse 2000 set for almost a 1/2 year. never had a problem until yesterday. i tried to adjust the volume with the volume controls available on the keyboard and it doesn't respond. i am currently running vista home basic. using a dell inspiron 1520. i tried changing the batteries and updating the drivers to no avail please assist. tnx in advance
It sounds like one or more of the files may have been corrupted somehow. Updating the drivers should have fixed it but if they don't replace the file that is corrupted, you get your problem.
Go into control panel and first check under add/remove software and uninstall the keyboard control software. That will clean out any corrupted files. Then reinstall the drivers and set it up your keys again.

I had a similar problem with a microsoft wireless keyboard. Tried all manner of fixes including updating a HID Serv DLL file, none of it worked (either mute or volume would work but not both). Eventually I stopped using the single USB connector to connect the wireless transmitter unit to the PC. Instead I connected the wireless sender unit to the PC via the Purple PS2 connector (keyboard) and via a Green USB - PS2 adapter (mouse). Don't ask me why but all the buttons started working straight away.
Hope this helps
